A little further, the path begins to climb. This is the beginning of the akba. An akba is a path that allows to climb from the valley (1,100m) to the plateau (1,600m). There are only few (three, I feel) akba that can be used by camels and none by cars, even 4WD.
The first and the second photos (enlarge) show that each cameleer leads two or three camels, tied on to the other, in an Indian file. The path has just the width needed by a camel but not more. Of course, we are not riding the camels but walking. The photographer has to run before the caravan, run behind the caravan, etc, in order to get the best photos!
By the side of the path, pinnacles can look as towers (third photo) or like strange animals (fourth photo).
